Golf Channel's "Feherty" premieres on March 6 at 9 p.m. ET. David Feherty's first guest for the new season is so good, the premiere is actually going to come in two parts.
That's what happens when you get Phil Mickelson -- and from the teasers we've seen, Lefty sure does not disappoint.
Take, for example, this story from the 2002 Ryder Cup at the Belfry.
Mickelson was paired with David Toms in alternate shot.
At the narrow, par-4 16th hole -- with a fairway that was only 14 yards wide -- Mickelson busted a 3-wood right down the pipe.
That left Toms just a 9-iron to a green that feeds everything back toward the hole. No problem for Toms who is lethal with the short irons -- the guy who beat Mickelson a year earlier because of his short irons in the 2001 PGA Championship -- right?
Not so much. Toms hit an awful shot into the lip of a greenside bunker leaving Mickelson with what looked to be an impossible lie.
From there, Mickelson hit a sensational shot that came out of the bunker sideways and then trickled to within 4 feet of the hole. Talk about bailing out your partner.
Before Toms set in to hit the putt, he asked Mickelson, "what do you think?"
Check out this video to hear what Mickelson told Toms. It's priceless:
Mickelson told Feherty it was, "the percentage play." In other words, "the safe shot."
You have to hear Mickelson's fascinating, if not hilarious, scientific explanation about why it was the safe shot because of "shot dispersion."
There's only one Phil Mickelson.
Never change, Phil. Never change.
